    Blaak + Mac

    BY:Josh and Brent

    This is a recipe brought to you by Facebook. We’ve made Mac + Cheese using Blaak quite often.  Every time we post on Facebook that we’re having it (sometimes Brent even eats it for breakfast), we get hundreds of requests for the recipe. We didn’t share because we were being stingy but because we hadn’t […]

    Homegrown chicken noodle soup

    BY:Deborah Niemann

      Nothing compares to the taste of homegrown chicken noodle soup made with an old-fashioned stew hen and homemade noodles. If you are lucky enough to have your own backyard hens, they truly make the most amazing broth when they get to be three or four years old. Almost three decades ago, Julia Child lamented […]

    Chocolate Roulade

    BY:204 Main

    In the morning before the kitchen at 204 Main begins to heat up, I like to make the desserts for the day. I’ve been making chocolate roulade for the last twenty years and, still, Jim and I look forward to a left-over end. It’ s a favorite of mine because of the short list of […]

    Creamy Golden Tomato & Kale Soup

    BY:Josh and Brent

    We grow dozens of varieties of heirloom tomatoes here at the farm. Not only do we enjoy their many different flavors, but we also take advantage of their different hues when it comes time for canning and preserving. For our jarred tomatoes, we separate our harvest into four categories: red/purple, orange/yellow, green & white. This […]

    Simple Kale Salad

    BY:Josh and Brent

        It’s no surprise that kale is one of our favorites.  A green hearty enough to last a mild winter is welcome roughage in a season dominated by starches and proteins. On a recent visit to the farm, a friend whipped us this easy salad, and we fell in love (with both the salad […]

    The Perfect Clarity

    BY:Eben Klemm

      I’m not a huge fan of most flavored vodkas, but I will admit a soft spot for pear vodka, which manages to capture a ripe crispness that actual pears so often do not.  This saketini variant is great for the winter because it preserves the simplicity of the drink’s idea  with just a little […]

    The Victorian Kitchen TV Series

    BY:Josh Kilmer-Purcell

      Since so many of you enjoyed viewing our compilation of the 1988 BBC series “The Victorian Kitchen Garden,” we thought we’d put together a page for the sequel series, “The Victorian Kitchen.” In this eight part series, we meet a cook named Ruth Mott, who, in her youth, was a kitchen maid in a […]

    Bavarian Cream with Strawberry Coulis

    BY:Josh and Brent

    We love classic desserts. They’re too often overlooked for the dessert-fad-of-the-moment. But really…isn’t it a little more impressive to serve a Bavarian Cream dessert at your next dinner party than a sprinkle cupcake lollipop? Bavarian Creams are usually a chilled, molded dessert. They’re probably best defined by their unique creamy-but-firm texture, which comes from a […]

    Hazelnut Meringue Roulade with Honey Sour Cream & Raspberry Coulis

    BY:Josh and Brent

      Meringues, like their distant cousin the marshmallow, are something you either love or you happily pass by on your way to more substantial desserts. There are various forms of meringues, but the most popular is probably the french meringue, which is simply vigorously whipped egg whites and sugar that is slowly baked in low […]
